About Apple Pie
Alien Genetics has brought us many fine strains over the years. Apple Pie is another cultivar in a long line of their highly sought after genetics. Taking Slymer and crossing it with a Sour Apple IBL they’ve been working on, a nice mix of flavor and effects was born. Rocking a milder, more functional high, this Apple Pie can really be enjoyed anytime you want.
Boasting mostly sativa genetics, this strain is going to have a slight stretch to it. The buds aren’t overly dense but form lollipop clusters of fragrant little flowers. The fresh colas have the unmistakable scent of sour apple candy mixed with a sweet vanilla chai. You won’t have to wait too long to enjoy this treat with around 8-9 weeks of flower time. But definitely don’t leave this Apple Pie out on the window sill to cool, it will get snatched up.
The flavor of the smoke has a more spicy note to it. The tart sour and vanilla notes take on a more spiced herbal quality. Depending on the grower and method used, especially the curing method, there can be some pretty drastic differences in the end result. The right hands can really get this strain’s flavors to pop.
Apple Pie’s effects are somewhat subtle making it a great strain anytime of the day. It doesn’t seem to have the jittery side effects commonly associated with sativas, but has a nice energetic kick. If you’re looking for a mid-day treat that won’t wreck your work, this might be a strain to consider. Trying to smoke all day and still get stuff done, Apple Pie is with you. If you’re looking for something strong and overpowering, this strain might not hit the mark.
While a few strains use the name Apple Pie, Alien Genetics has cooked up a more flavorful and modern version. Seeds are rare but fresh batches do pop up in Colorado and California dispensaries from time to time. So if you’re planning your next adventure next door, and need a sweet smokey treat for the trail that won’t weigh you down physically or mentally, throw some Apple Pie in your pack.
